    DescriptionAs Peanuts reaches the mid-1980s, Charles Schulz is still creating and playing with new characters, and in this volume Snoopy s deadpan, droopy-mustached brother Spike takes center stage: Surrounded by coyotes in the desert where he lives and who are attacking him with rubber bands, he sends a frantic message to Snoopy who launches an expedition to save him. Then, he makes the long trek back to Snoopy s neck of the woods accompanied by his only friend (a cactus, of course) and throughout the rest of the book, pops up in hilarious, Waiting for Godot-style vignettes set in his native Needles. In romantic news, the Peppermint Patty-Marcie-Charlie Brown love triangle of overlapping unrequited love heats up (well, kind of ), while Linus continues to vociferously deny that he is Sally s Sweet Babboo; of course, Lucy s unsuccessful pursuit of Schroeder remains unabated. Also, a romance blossoms between two of Snoopy s Beagle Scout birds. (We will pass over Spike s brief attraction to one of the coyotes.) In what is probably his most baroque and hilarious baseball-involved humiliation yet, Charlie Brown agrees to join Peppermint Patty s team the Pelicans only to discover that he s wanted not as a player but as a mascot Linus gives up his security blanket and forms a support group for other kids who are trying to do the same and Peppermint Patty manages to be held back in school (leaving a Snoring Ghost to take her place in the rest of the class that has advanced) and yet get to go on a European trip with her dad, sending back periodic dispatches from the road. All this plus appearances from Franklin, Rerun, and the rest of the gang in these strips from a period of Peanuts that s far less well-known than the endlessly-collected 1960s and 1970s eras "
